2009 Christmas Recital/Party

  On Wednesday, December 16th, all Golden Girls and their parents gathered together at the Windsor Recreation Center for their annual Christmas Recital/Party!  The first portion of the evening consisted of the girls performing a variety of their routines, followed by intermission, and an awards/slide show presentation.  The party really got going once the music started.  Our traditional dances of “The Chicken Dance”, “Hokey Pokey”, “Danish Dance”, and the all-time favorite “Time Warp” were enjoyed by all.  The evening continued to build as the moms/ladies got up to compete in their own drill down, and the fathers/gentlemen showed off their strutting and twirling technique for our annual “Mr. Majorette” competition.   And finally, who do you suppose made a grand visit to wish everyone a “MERRY CHRISTMAS”???*******************************************************************************************************Click here to see a video of the “Time Warp”!Click here to see the Junior Drill Down contest!Click here to see the first portion of the favorite “Mr. Majorette” contest!Click here to see the second portion of the “Mr. Majorette” contest!*******************************************************************************************************The girls started off by warming up in the gym
